Ukraine Crisis Calls for a Network of Support
For 98 years, International Social Service (ISS) has worked shoulder to shoulder as a global network in 130 countries to protect children, adults and families separated by borders. Throughout our history, we have been called upon to provide services in world wars, conflicts and humanitarian disasters, and we have done so with objectivity, neutrality, and with the primary goal of acting in the best interest of children. As the armed conflict unfolds in Ukraine, the ISS network is prepared to advocate for children and families, provide services where needed as families cross borders, and ensure that both in the short and long term, children remain or are reunited with families, they are protected, and there are durable solutions for children to reach their full potential.
All children have the right to life and survival – we must protect them. Support Ukrainians here.
